In Memoriam

In Memoriam

Vital Burnley have received the following press release from the club asking if we could bring this to the attention of our readers. We are of course delighted to help

Burnley Football Club would like to invite supporters to join the club in remembering members of the Clarets` family who have sadly passed away in the past year.

Following a proposal by the Supporters` Liaison Group (SLG), the club has designated the first game of the calendar year as an appropriate time to hold a one-minute silence in memory of loved ones.

The first 'In Memoriam` will therefore take place ahead of the Burnley v Crystal Palace game at Turf Moor on Saturday, January 12, 2013.

The SLG, comprising of senior club staff, supporters` club members and representatives from the Clarets Trust, hereby invite supporters to submit the names of anyone who has passed away in 2012 and who you would like to be remembered in this moment of reflection.

All names we receive will be added to the former players and staff who have passed away and displayed on the big screen ahead of the Palace game.

All names will also appear in the edition of the matchday magazine, Claret & You that accompanies the game.

Please e-mail the name, age and hometown of the person you would like to be included to info@burnleyfc.com

The deadline for names to be received is Wednesday, January 9, 2013.

On behalf of all senior staff, management and the supporters of Burnley Football Club, we would like to pass on our sincere condolences for your loss.

Think this is a great idea. Having a quiet moment allows everyone to remember those who are no longer with us.
